Day four of Crufts - Buddy in the limelight

I love this photo of Buddy and some of the Safe and Sound team in the main arena at Crufts 2010. He had to stay in the car while the children moved around him and the commentator warned the audience about the dangers of teasing dogs in cars. Although he did in deed stay in the car, he longed to get out and join in the fun, and he kept flashing me that reproachful expression, clearly asking, "Can I go and play now?"

It was great fun and a wonderful message to help publicise.

Take care,

Buddy's hobbies

Life has been very busy the last few weeks, and one of the things keeping Buddy and me busy has been rehearsing with the Safe and Sound team, getting ready for Crufts. Safe and Sound is an excellent scheme run by the Kennel Club to promote the correct and safe way to behave around dogs. We will part of the Safe and Sound displays in the main arena at Crufts on the Saturday and Sunday of the show.
